This book is designed to help Christians everywhere understand with greater clarity how to participate in the amazing works of God – and to enrich the lives of those around them with His love and power.
Author Pete Carter poses such questions as:
- Can a nation be changed?
- How can hope be brought into seemingly hopeless situations?
- How can we grow as individuals in Jesus’ love and power?
- How can we demonstrate that love and power to the world around us?
He uses the biblical story of Lazarus, brought back from the dead by his friend Jesus, to explore the answers.
Jesus raised Lazarus from the dead – but that wasn’t the end of the story. This episode was not complete until Lazarus was free to live again, and that could not happen until the grave clothes restricting his body were removed. Likewise, one of our main tasks in serving Jesus is to "unwrap Lazarus” – to help people become all they were created to be. We were all born to be fully "unwrapped” – to love God more, to trust Him more, and to do all that Jesus did and more!
